Mets acquire Daniel Vogelbach in trade with Pirates

The New York Mets added some power to their lineup on Friday.

The team announced that they have acquired designated hitter Daniel Volgelbach from the Pittsburgh Pirates in exchange for reliever Colin Holderman.

Vogelbach signed a one-year contract with Pittsburgh last offseason, which included a team option for next season. The 29-year-old is hitting .228 with a .769 OPS through 75 games, which includes 10 doubles, 12 home runs, and 34 RBIs.

In 14 games this season, Holderman is 4-0 with a 2.04 ERA while walking seven and striking out 18 over 17 2/3 innings.
